I always knew I would end up in a
padded room one day,
I just never expected it to be made
out of Dog Beds.
In 2012 my wife and I were blessed to be rescued by a Galgo named Leena. This scared little white Galgo inspired my wife and I to start Love Hope Believe Galgo Adoption (www.adoptagalgo.com) in 2013. When our group was first starting out, we were lucky enough to have a member of Hearts Speak (www.HeartsSpeak.org) take photographs of our adoptable Galgos and give me several tips to take better photos of our adoptable dogs. Since then I have been working on my photography skills and taking photos of the Galgos during our trips to Spain. Now I have the opportunity to pay it forward. My wife and I have made five trips to Spain to volunteer at the shelters and have transported 60 Galgos back to the US for adoption. In December 2014 I published my first photo book "Galgo Espanol After The Hunt" (http://www.blurb.com/b/6708469-galgo-espanol-after-the-hunt) The money raised from the book is donated to Baas Galgo, the shelter we volunteered at in February 2015. I also have two more Photo Books in the works that will benefit Shelters in Spain that care for these beautiful animals.
My wife and I currently have 1 Greyhound and 4 Galgos.
I work as a Sr. IT Engineer for my County Government, when I'm not behind the camera.
My left arm has a Tattoo Sleeve that is dedicated to our second Greyhound Savanna.
The most relaxing vacation I have ever had, was sleeping in the middle of a shelter with 550 dogs. The following week, I slept in a hotel with one dog outside that kept barking and got no Sleep.
My first pet was a male cat that I named Ash from Army of Darkness. He was rescued by my sister after a man drowned the rest of his litter in a barrel of oil.
